Item #38205

Engraved Tranter Model 1879 Revolver (Published)

  • Price: $3,895.00
  • Maker: Tranter
  • Model: 1879
  • Caliber: .380

  • Description: NSN, .380 CF, 3 barrel with a very good, lightly freckled bore. This is a handsome revolver that has retained 85-90% of the original nickel finish with mottled plum-brown on the screws, hammer, and latch (although muted color case-hardening can still be seen). The barrel rib and topstrap are engraved in block letters: THOS. TRANTER 16 WEAMAN ST. / BIRMINGHAM; and the remainder of the revolver has delicate scrollwork filigree. The one-piece walnut grip is in fine condition with only minor handling marks and blemishes, and some mild flattening of the points. The barrel lock-up is tight, and the action functions flawlessly. This revolver is described and illustrated on pgs. 226 and 227 of Tranter Cartridge Firearms by Black, Guerin & Michaud; 2007, and would make a splendid addition to any collection of Tranter handguns.
